Yesterday I talked about my trip to Woolfest and some wine tasting. Today I’m going to show you the goodies I picked up.
First, a set of Harry Potter inspired mini skeins from The Sexy Knitter. I have met Sarah in person several times now. She is such a bright and bubbly person and a blast to talk about knitting with. She has been putting one of a kind (OOAK) indie dyed mini skeins in her Etsy shop for awhile. I had resisted on Etsy but couldn’t pass them up in person. They are 25 yards each so I have roughly 100 yards here to add to my sock yarn memory blanket.
Next up is a sock blank from TreasureGoddess Yarn. I think this blank is made from her Treasured Toes sock base. And I have never knit from a blank before so I just couldn’t resist. I have knit with her Cashmere Super Toes before to make my Old Man of Storr shawlette. Which by the way, I was wearing that day and was able to show off to her. This blank definitely needs to be a pair of socks for me!
Lastly, but certainly not least…..I found a perfectly geeky project bag. In my house The Big Bang Theory is totally a thing. I watch re-runs almost every day to help block out the negativity that is permeating the world lately. This bag is from AuntStephsHndmdGifts on Etsy. She had all kinds of geek themed fabrics but this just HAD to come home with me. It’s large enough to hold socks, a shawl, or a child’s sweater. I’m so excited about this bag I can’t even decide what should go in here!
And there you have it…my haul from Woolfest 2017. I thought I was remarkably restrained given the high volume of yarn fumes!
